Emergency management

The Local Emergency Management Plan details the response and recovery arrangements within the Port Stephens Local Government Area to ensure a coordinated response during emergency incidents.

The objectives of the Local Emergency Management Plan are to:

  • identify the combat agency primarily responsible for responding to the emergency;
  • specify the tasks to be performed by all agencies in the event of an emergency;
  • provide for the co-ordination of the activities of other agencies in support of the combat agencies; and
  • specify the responsibilities of the Minister and the State, Region, or Local Emergency Operations Controller.
